I had a vhd with Windows Server 2008 R2 and has AD on this VHD, now I need to remove this AD for some reason which may happen with anyone so thought I share how to do this,

It is really easy, the same way you installed AD when open “run” and typed “dcpromo” will be the same open “run” and type again “dcpromo” but only steps are different,

just follow the steps and check the boxes saying remove Active Directory and you are done and ofcourse you will need to restart … J

OS: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2
